The letter also brings to bear some financial obligations that McDan Aviation has not completed payment for, i.e. the company owes GACL a total of USD4,505,034.00 and GHC227,293.00.

The Union tasked the board and the government to “empower the management to adequately discharge its responsibilities without fear or favor.”
